The Poetry of Sapardi Djoko Damono (1940 - 2020) is piercing and biting when exploring the political world through the peephole of democratic tyranny. In the conclusion of a book, he writes that as a chosen human, a president must be willing and able to fight against party politics, while also having the courage to fight against candidates likened to a cat in a sack.
